BusinessForce Endorses Candidates in 2022 Races 

Supports Pro-Business candidates on local and state level 

BusinessForce announces the early endorsement of incumbent candidates in the Florida Senate and the Florida House of Representatives in Orange and Seminole County that are running for re-election in November.  The early endorsements prior to the candidate qualifying deadlines are candidates that were previously endorsed by BusinessForce and have demonstrated their support for pro-business public policy.  

BusinessForce endorses: 

  • Senator Jason Brodeur, District 10 
  • Representative Fred Hawkins, District 35 
  • Representative David Smith, District 38 

 “The endorsement of Sen Brodeur and Representatives Smith and Hawkins demonstrates the commitment BusinessForce makes to candidates at the state level who are responsive and supportive of our business community,” said BusinessForce Chairman, Todd Wilcox.  “Our Board believes that all three of these candidates will continue to work to represent the best interests of the citizens of Central Florida, its businesses and its future.  We look forward to fully engaging in this election cycle to support pro-business candidates at the state and local level.”
